much easier: Tinkle Baria Sajanpura Gujarat In the modest village of Sajanpura in Chhota Udepur district of Gujarat Tinkle Baria a Class XII student is awaiting a new phase of life when she turns 16 this April Baria will pass out of the Mastram Primary and Secondary High School located in Utavadi in Narmada district where for the past 12 years she has unfailingly attended classes braving a raging river and trekking through mucky fields spanning several kilometres This year Baria might not have to swim to school across the Hiran river straining to hold her books above the water during monsoon or sit through class in a dripping wet uniform For the state government has finally commenced the construction of the bridge connecting the banks of Chhota Udepur and Narmada districts — separated by the Hiran — a bridge that was an unfulfilled promise since 2009 Baria’s strongest memories of school life are of the journey to school one that deeply tested her endurance — from walking about a kilometre to the river bank to nearly swimming through the 600 m wide river at times chest-deep and then covering a distance of almost 6 km from the sandbars to the school “Sometimes I feel that for many children the trek to their school is much easier yet they drop out or disregard the opportunity they have But for us education is our only hope to a better life” she says Baria who lives with her mother and her maternal uncle wants to be a teacher “to help children in my village study and change their lives” In the monsoon of 2014 shortly after The Indian Express had highlighted the plight of children swimming across the Hiran to school a philanthropic NRI couple from New York arrived in the village and donated an inflatable motor boat to ease the children’s journey Although the children got respite for one monsoon season internal bickering between villagers sabotaged the effort forcing the children into the waters again In a village where most boys drop out of school to opt for vocational training to support their families and girls are married off early Baria’s family supports her decision to pursue education “I am looking forward to this year for many reasons I am excited about going to a big college once I complete my Class XII and also about the new bridge I cannot wait to run across the bridge when it is ready to see the expanse of the riverbed that I had to swim across with my friends to get to school” Inputs by: Aditi Raja I slept a lot in these vacations and mother would scold me: Sapna Sharma Mahwa Rajasthan Happy in her bubble: Sapna Sharma (right) with her sister Anjali Sharma (Express photo by Rohit Jain Paras) The farthest she her two sisters and a brother have been to is 166 km away And if it wasn’t for the annual pilgrimage around Navratra to Jwala Mata temple in Jobner Jaipur they would not have been exposed to the sights and sounds of another town But perhaps the pilgrimage is inadequate to churn her imagination — Sapna Sharma 16 nods her head left-right when asked about her aspirations She is certain that she has no wishes whatsoever Right in the middle of Jaipur-Agra highway the road divides for Mahwa on the left abruptly changing character from smooth to rough The main town is a little ahead where the carts are overflowing with fresh vegetables and fruits There is a bull fight and people scramble from wooden benches to get their scooters and cycles out of the way laughing from a distance A little deep into the town and it seems to turn into a village the road now merely keechad (slush) It is this slush that Sharma has to walk through to reach her school half a kilometre away from her home But she doesn’t seem to mind it “We have to go to school anyway it has been there for long” she says sitting in the open courtyard of her neighbour the sarpanch on a sunny afternoon A fortnight’s winter vacation which she spent in her home like always has just ended and she will rejoin her friends in Class XI at a government school “I slept a lot in these vacations and my mother would scold me I watched lots of television played badminton helped with chores and also did a little homework” she says Her favourite music is devotional Her favourite television programme is Meri Doli Tere Angana which is about an orphan who is married to a man in love with somebody else Sometimes she has to watch a repeat telecast if there is a power cut The neighbours are grateful for the 12-16 hours of electricity the village receives Do any of her friends want to be something say a teacher “No we’ve never discussed it” What do they discuss then “Just television programmes” The last time anyone in the village got a doctorate was four decades ago Devki Nandan 38 attempted it about a decade ago but he didn’t succeed His work as a salesman in the “medical sector” in Jaipur has made him one of the most widely travelled in the village “Our town is better than the towns in Jodhpur or the districts in the west of the state” says Nandan It was the four-laning of the Jaipur-Agra highway around 2005 that brought more schools and facilities He is happy that Mahwa is indeed progressing even if slowly The 2011 census put Mahwa’s population at 24846 with 4402 households However only 29 per cent of the population is classified as “working” and the literacy rate stands at 63 per cent Mahwa is a census town a classification accorded if at least 75 per cent of the male main working population is engaged in non-agricultural pursuits a population density of 400 per square kilometres and a minimum population of 5000 persons Meanwhile Sapna is undecided whether she wants to continue her education beyond Class XII Her father runs a sweetmeat shop in the town and an uncle a farmer pitches in To know what one is missing out on one first needs to know what is out there In the absence of the latter she seems content with life Is there anything she could change about the village “We get water from the board only for an hour between 7 and 8 am” she says unexpectedly touching a “sensitive” topic as the people surrounding her react “It was in 1995 that Rondh Dam was filled to capacity for the last time” says Jagdish Singh 72 Several roads were constructed around it beginning 1995 and the water level started to drop “The water is only till 300 feet So we have five-six years morebefore we hit a layer of rock” he says “Nobody knows what will happen then Maybe we will leave the village or just die” says Singh By then Sharma if still unmarried may have to finally step out of her village Inputs by: Hamza Khan I saw their guns and ran home: Bhavesh Kumar Kange Karap Chhattisgarh How green is his valley: Bhawesh Kumar Kange The colour green is important to Bhavesh Kumar Kange It reminds him of the villages he grew up in It reminds him of the state he lives in And most importantly it tells the 16-year-old of his love for home and what needs to be done to make it better Two years ago when Kange represented his school the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya in Karap Kanker district in a national handball tournament he took his first trip out of his home state of Chhattisgarh He saw the bright lights of Ahmedabad and the development of Gujarat “And all I thought about was where is the green I saw the big malls and shops and apartments of the cities But I missed the clean air of Kanker and the green of the trees that are near my village and outside my school Going outside does different things to people It told me I want to work for my state and be an IAS officer” Kange said Like most other children that grow up in south Chhattisgarh Naxalism is always part of the narrative He has heard of them as the dadalog who sometimes frequented his village of Kahadgondi in Kanker for supplies Then when he was eight and moved with his schoolteacher father to another village called Konde some kilometres away he came across them And his memory is vivid “I was watching a cricket match at an elder’s house They came to the house and told everyone to come for a meeting They were not rude but I saw their guns and ran home My parents had to go whether they wanted to or not Everyone had to” he says It isn’t unusual for people to find it difficult to take a position on the Maoists when they live right in their midst and Kange is no different Yet his young mind has a solution to the “conflict” and his dreams come from it “There is so much anger because there is no development in the jungles It was only last year that the first ever handpump came to Kahadgondi Before that everyone drank water from the well which was untreated There is a primary school but no healthcare Just because people live in the forests doesn’t mean they should have no basic amenities That is why I want to be an IAS officer There’s no point going out and earning for myself I have to make things better For that we need hospitals and importantly schools” he says The importance of schooling is something that even at his young age Kange talks endlessly about In Class V his father brought home some forms to apply for the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya essentially model residential schools where admission is gained through a test Among 5000 applications 60 are picked every year and Kange’s world opened up when he found his name on the list “The fact that I come to this school has let me dream of being an IAS officer Otherwise the maximum anybody else can dream of in our jungle villages is to study and be a teacher” he says RN Jadhav a teacher at the Navodaya Vidyalaya says that these students are extraordinary conditioned as they are by their childhood and deep desire to succeed against the odds “When you give these students from rural backgrounds schooling and education they value it in a way that children in more developed parts of the country don’t Their education and their dreams mean something to them A way out” he says As he sits in what is meant to be free time on a Sunday Kange speaks to Aakash Mandavi a fellow student about a model he presented at a regional science Olympiad seeking to reduce pollution Mandavi is excited and his explanation is elaborate but Kange cuts him short On a weekend when the playgrounds in most other schools would be full Kange says “I have to go wash my clothes and then go to the academic block and study” Even though he is only in Class XI and he will have to graduate college to be eligible already tucked away in his pile of books is one that is very dear to him The UPSC competition master Inputs by: Dipankar Ghose I want to repay my brother’s faith: Rekha Nilappa Powar Wagholi Maharashtra Such a long journey: Rekha Nilappa Powar (Express photo by Sandeep Daundkar) Change has been a constant in the life of Rekha Nilappa Powar For a year now she has been studying in a school for stone quarry workers’ children in Wagholi But the life that she’s living now was a distant dream while she stayed with her parents in the quarry of Halsawade in Karvir province of Kolhapur district Her whole family —father mother two elder brothers and an elder sister — still work in the same quarry She was nearly married off at 14 if not for the intervention of her brother Shankar Shifting to a new place has never been difficult for Powar Her family has migrated several times in the last 16 years sometimes because they couldn’t pay off their debts sometimes because the quarries shut down She fondly remembers her native place Gulbarga in northern Karnataka which she left a decade ago to move to the remote quarries of northeastern Karnataka and later southern Maharashtra Moving to Pashan Shala a school run by the NGO Santulan in Wagholi was the easiest journey so far “Life was tough earlier now it’s much better” Here she lives in a hostel with her best friend Lakshmi who accompanied her from Halsawade and 60 other students who come from different districts of the state Their mentor in the city and Santulan’s founder Bastu Rege played a big part in bringing the girls here ‘Bhau’ as they affectionately call him has the faith of almost all the quarry workers across Maharashtra as he has been fighting for their cause for the last 20 years “My father had to take a loan for my sister’s marriage Then he fell ill Now to pay off the debt he needs help from my brothers and me My brother didn’t want to work in the quarry; but they forced him Sometimes I accompanied him too We got Rs 30 for filling a trolley with stones” she says Recollecting the day she moved to Wagholi where Santulan is headquartered Rege said “Rekha knew that I was coming for an annual visit and had already packed her bags On such visits I usually ask parents to send their children to study in a better environment but they rarely send girls” One challenge that Rekha and 32657 other students of Pashan Shala schools in 28 districts of Maharashtra face is to come under the purview of Right to Education (RTE) Act Powar visits her parents in Halsawade during vacations but doesn’t like to stay for long as her father pesters her to get married She wants to study and become a collector “I want to make my brother proud I want to repay his
